How We Can Help

Our assistance comes in many forms. Some individuals and organizations contact us to help them in understanding and navigating a particular law, ordinance or statute. Others want to know how other public health professionals and advocates are leveraging laws and policies to address pressing issues in their communities. For many, law and policy seem complex and they are unsure how their initiatives might benefit by examining the laws and policies that impact it. We help them cut through this complexity by providing the legal expertise and evidence-based information they need to protect and improve public health, and advance health equity.
